Jets Acquire WR Walter Powell on Waivers

Posted Sep 1, 2014

LB Jeremiah George Released to Make Roster Room; CB LeQuan Lewis to Practice Squad

The Jets proved for the third time in the last two days that the "Final 53" is far from final when this afternoon they acquired WR Walter Powell on waivers from the Arizona Cardinals.

To make room for Powell on the roster, the team has released fifth-round rookie LB Jeremiah George.

This roster swap comes shortly after we announced the signing of veteran free agent CB Phillip Adams and the release of sixth-round rookie WR Quincy Enunwa.

Powell was Arizona's sixth-round choice (196th overall) of this year's draft out of Murray State. He had six receptions for 106 yards (17.7-yard per-catch average) with a long of 45 yards.

In fact, he did a little bit of everything with the Cards this summer. He played in all four preseason games, logging 148 plays, including 34 on special teams. Besides his receptions, he had one rush (for 2 yards), three punt returns (for 4 yards), seven kickoff returns (for 180 yards, a 25.7-yard average), and a special-teams tackle.

George participated in 136 plays over all four preseason games for us this summer, making nine tackles, including one on special teams.


LeQuan Lewis Returns

In one more transaction that the Jets announced this afternoon, they have signed CB LeQuan Lewis to the practice squad.

Lewis, who we noted when he arrived was making his 27th pro football transaction when he signed with the Jets on Aug. 12, is now up to 29 after he was released from the 53-man roster on Sunday, cleared waivers, and became the eighth player to be signed to the practice squad.

Keep in mind that last month the NFL and NFLPA agreed to expand practice squads from eight to 10 for the next two seasons, so the Jets have two more slots to fill.
